Bamboo Bicycles by Bamboosero

These days more and more folks are exploring bamboo as a ‘sustainable’ building material. There’s even a few bicycle companies that are using it to build frames. But there’s one company in particular, California-based Bamboosero, that has created a business model around bamboo that does more than sell a ‘green’ bike.

Led by founder and designer Craig Calfee, the company trains communities in impoverished parts of the world to construct high quality frames and then buys them from those communities at full market value. They put no restrictions on who can build or sell the bikes locally. This model not only makes for some beautiful bikes, but also creates opportunities for the communities, like those in Ghana, to create a product that they can really make use of themselves.
